The Egyptian Revolution Inspires a Graphic Novel About Environmental Collapse


When you've got Egyptian heritage and live in the West, something funny happens when you meet another Egyptian. We get giddy, we smile a lot, we act as if we've known each other forever. After some coffee and a quick tour of his California bungalow, the graphic artist known as Ganzeer hands me a stack of some pages from The Solar Grid. The black-and-white pages are crinkled and dried after being soaked in ink. Each panel looks like it may have taken hours. It's a lot of work for just one person to complete, but it makes sense that this is the next step in Ganzeer's career as an artist.
